TC Vietnamese’s House Combination Pho
By Karl Klockars | Aug. 26, 2023
Even though Good Bowl has had a well-deserved monopoly on pho in TC for a while now, more options for bowls of the savory-sweet, beefy, and deeply herbaceous Vietnamese noodle soup can never be a bad thing. That’s why we’re always happy to order up another serving of the House Combination Pho at TC Vietnamese. This bowl goes all-in, packed with lightly-simmered rare steak, toothsome brisket, and springy meatballs along with rice noodles, onions, and scallions. Toss in some basil and bean sprouts, squeeze on a dash of lime, and dab some sriracha or chili crisp on there, and you have a genuinely delicious authentic flavor overload. Feeling a bit under the weather (especially if it’s the post-winery-tour kind of feels)? This is your new comfort soup selection. And don’t sleep on the summer rolls with sweet shrimp, crunchy lettuce, and squishy noodles all wrapped in sticky rice paper and slathered with peanut sauce while you’re at it. Find TC Vietnamese at 718 Munson Ave., Suite B, in Traverse City.
